Normally we wouldn’t be so eager to go on the Singapore Flyer multiple times as it isn’t so economical, but as Andrew can get passes through his place of employment we’ve been able to frequent this iconic ferris wheel many times. My sister’s visit is no exception.
We were going to meet Andrew downtown after he got off work, but quickly realized that meant dinner should come first. While we were discussion options, we realized that Tam liked sushi and we hadn’t been to our favorite sushi place in over a year (darn rules about not eating sushi while pregnant!)
For $1.50(SGD)/plate, the price is hard to beat. But the company was even harder to beat! The limitation with the Sushi Express is that you can’t extend your stay past 50minutes. But honestly, with a 6 month old along for the trip, that time constraint is more of a blessing than a limitation!
As we sat down it was apparent that Tam was intrigued by the moving conveyer belt of sushi goodness. Before I knew it, my sister shrieked (as much as my sister can shriek) with delight as she selected her first plate. What was her first plate? Cream puffs! Not very sushi-like, but she was thrilled all the same. Don’t worry, she ate real sushi and even picked out a plate that had shrimp with their heads still attached.
Aside from a diaper change and the urge to grab and play with everything on the table, Gideon did very well. He was even agreeable enough to pose with us.
After filling up on sushi (and cream puffs) our mission was to get to the Flyer.
When we got outside we discovered that it was a beautiful night complete with a full moon!
I was so proud of Gideon. Even though it had been a long evening was agreeable to stay out later so that we could enjoy the Flyer.
It was fun for both the new timers (Gideon & Tam) as well as us old timers (Me and Andrew) to see the lit up downtown from the Flyer. I don’t know how long we’ll live in Singapore, but I will make a point of enjoying these lights any time we go downtown at night.
Despite doing a wonderful job staying out late, Gideon (and the rest of us) were ready to go home and sleep!
